The ever-growing TV niche that is reality television is in the process of adding one new member to its family, and this time around, every NASCAR-loving person in the world should definitely stand up and take notice.

NBC, together with NASCAR, is in the process of developing a reality-based TV show that will center on the world of NASCAR. The show, which has been given the working title ‘The Crew’, will be written and produced by Joe Pokaski – you might remember him from his work with Heroes – with NBC Universal-based producer Scott Stuber. The idea for the show centers around a NASCAR racing team where, despite having their own personal lives, still works together to become the best team they could be.

No timetable has been set on when the show will begin to air, but NBC is working hard on acquiring licenses from NASCAR to use names, logos, tracks, and race footage to make the show as realistic as possible.

Nevertheless, this NASCAR-centered reality drama will definitely attract its share of viewers when the show begins airing on NBC. When that will be is still up in the air, but consider our curiosities to be definitely piqued, especially considering NBC gave up the opportunity to host America’s version of Top Gear because they didn’t feel America would respond well to a car themed TV show. Hmm...

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
